Electronic Patient Records – The power of going paperless
It is clear that Electronic Patient Records are the way forward in healthcare; constantly improving the care organisations provide. But if you still aren’t convinced how this new technology is beneficial, read on.
For many years healthcare relied on paper-based records, meaning piles of files, or lose bits of paper left floating around desks. This method is not only dated, but unreliable, with information frequently going missing or someone transposing it incorrectly. Add to that this system being time-consuming and prone to errors, then surely it’s time to leave it behind.
